How good is Phage?

  1. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    That's the one...
  2. train The Wildcard!!!...

    that's one of the worst counters, as it adds insult to injury...:rolleyes:
  3. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Which counter is your favorite, Train?
  4. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Probably whatever the worst counter is (if there is one :) )
  5. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Spellblast comes to mind, but I'm sure Train can find something worse...
  6. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I don't think that's the worst, although I can't really think of an alternate at the moment... there's just too many counters now :)
  7. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Well, there's Fold into AEther, which is pretty un-counterlike, and therefore possibly his favorite...

    But as far as the worst, Scent of Brine is pretty bad too, but I'm still not sure...

    Edit: What was I thinking? Burnout or something would have to be Train's favorite counter...

    Summoner's Egg and Confusion in the Ranks. Somebody did this to me with Eater of Days, but Phage would be faster.
  9. mythosx Legendary Creature-Human

    thats pretty darn cool
  10. Homestar Who invited this guy?

    i like to stick with phage+donate, nothing ore complicated then that. i dont have pahge but thats what i would do...
  11. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Phage+ Donate

    You must have been misinformed...

    I believe it was already stated on this thread. But all that combo will do is give your opponent a 4/4 body that will kill you if it hits you...

    A decidedly bad idea. If you want to Donate something to your opponent that will kill you, I guess Phage fits that purpose. Mindslaver might be more fun though...
  12. Homestar Who invited this guy?

    o, oops lol
  13. train The Wildcard!!!...

    the worst counterspell is counterspell... hands down...

    The worst one if I played blue - ertai's trickery...

    why? - it is the only counterspell that whose counter is effective against "block" spells only... All other "counter" spells can counter normally...

    I can't believe I just gave such a serious response... with reasoning...

    cool...

    :cool:
  14. Homestar Who invited this guy?

    Man heck with that, ertai's meddling is cool.........
  15. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Homestar: Train was talking about Ertai's Trickery, not Meddling...

    Train: What about Mana Drain? I've played with and against Counterspell a lot, beaten it a lot too. But I've never won a game in which Mana Drain hit...
  16. Homestar Who invited this guy?

    Oversoul: i kno and i said heck with trickery, i like meddling.........
  17. train The Wildcard!!!...

    I've won a game when the drain hit... and it isn't so bad really - it's not like you could re-use the mana...

    Of course the blue player gets the mana - but sometimes they can't spend it, sometimes they can..
  18. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I would much rather play against Counterspell and not have the potential to Mana Drain my opponent than play against Mana Drain and watch the my spell fuel a Mind Twist, Fact or Fiction, Braingeyser, Wheel of Fortune, Nevinyrral's Disk, etc.
  19. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Me too... I'd rather it be that way - but it's blue, and sadly, a fact of Magic...:rolleyes:
  20. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Both cards are blue, so I'm not sure what you mean...
